Written by Anthony Shaffer

Written by the author of Sleuth, it takes the audience back to Agatha Christie's England. Six strangers and a butler have gathered for a black tie dinner in a wealthy lawyer's mansion during a thunderstorm. The guests include an aged rear admiral, a bitchy aristocrat, a doddering old archeologist, a dashing young cad and other Christie types. One of the guests is an oily Levantine who tells the others (each in private) that he has the goods to blackmail them. He is ripe for murder and so it happens. But, whodunnit?

Originally performed at the Biltmore Theatre, New York in December 1982.
It is set in the 1920s/30s in the library of Orcas Champflower Manor; once a rather grand room with extensive bookcases.
